Tu B'Av - Jewish Valentine's Day

The evening of August 15th and the day of August 16th is the holiday of Tu B'Av (the 15th of the month of Av) traditionally known as a day of love, or the Jewish Valentine's Day when in ancient times matches were made. Tu B'Av falls right on the full moon, believed to link the bright shining potency of the moon with the full expression of love, romance, and fertility.

Consider how you might show extra love to yourself this Tu B'Av. Maybe take yourself on a date or do something extra kind for yourself over Shabbat or this weekend. Think about how you can you deepen your relationships with yourself this month.
